14XM PDK will be ready as early as Sep '13 (??), MPW in Q1 or Q2 '13 (??), 20nm process was ready but declined to comment commercial HVM running by Marketing&Sales EVP(??). Come on, It does not like normal practice with credit. Peter, you give hard time to Mr. Noonen to tell the truth(bluff).

ARM CEO is a bloke. Dont know crap. ARM is in trouble. None of these FinFETs will come out for another 2 years.

We should probably rename Intel's 22nm finfet to 28nm as well then? If I recall the ARM ceo was pointing out Intel's 22nm had similar backend to the foundries 28nm node and a 26nm drawn gate dimension.

Bulk FinFET roll ? I will wait for FinFET on SOI version Mr Noonen It appears if I watch a moving on Surface Pro using Core i5 (22nm bulk FinFET) vs Surface RT (Arm 40LP) ~10 hour play time on Arm Surface vs 4 hours on a bulk FinFET Surface Bulk FinFET even included advantage of die shrink to 22nm. SOI needed for the power savings

I 3rd the motion. peter, I suggest you make the industry honest and have eetimes call this "14nm" 20nm as well as rename the other foundry offering of "16nm" to "20nm" as well. what BS !

I agree. By calling 14XM is a hype. They should call it 20fin something like that. Finfet can't serve all the markets anyway and Intel is tweaking its own 22nm finfet to serve different segements of foundry market.

The foundries should have called it another flavor of 20 nm.

Well, I have to admit that I have a great big Cheshire Cat-type grin plastered on my face at the moment, because the prototype for my Vetinari Clock project is now well underway.
